Beth Bolden hits all the right notes with this compelling fairy tale
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In a complete departure from her usual writings, Beth Bolden visits the world of the fairy tale.
With Yours, Forever After, she gives the reader an utterly compelling and truly delightful romance between a naive young Prince and a world-weary jaded man who’s long given up on his royal birth.
Throw in a sarcastic and snooty unicorn and this has all the makings of a wonderful tale of heroes and villains, great adventures, slow burn romance and that’s what you get.
From Gray’s initial scepticism and unwillingness to get involved, to the sly manipulation that the King of Unicorns performs on his unwitting heroes, to the great bunch of side characters who appear along the way, Beth delivers.
I will declare an interest here, as I was once again lucky enough to be a beta reader for Beth, but there were very little suggestions to make because the pacing of this book takes the reader through from the hesitant first exchanges and into an exciting ride which sees all the hallmark moments you’d expect from a fairy story.
I do hope there’s more in this world as I’d love to see what happens next for Grey and Rory and I rather miss the imperious tone of Evrard telling everyone what to do and how to behave as they head off into the mountains to find a hidden treasure which turns out to be something rather more than just that.
